The death of a loved one has a powerful and significant impact on a person's life. But the surrounding world often expects survivors to move quickly beyond their loss, to just snap out of it. A wise and sensitive dissenting voice, Grief Therapy demonstrates how the grieving process takes time and deserves attention. With succinct, meaningful guidelines and hope-filled illustrations, it reassures those who grieve that out of their pain can come profound, transforming healing.
